It is easier and faster to perform the necessary electrical wiring before the walls of the house are finished. If you have this option, to install the wiring for the solar energy system beforehand, be convinced that you are going to save time and money.

For a multi-story home, the best option is to install the solar panels as the roof is built, so before the scaffolding is dismantled; again, it will save you time and money.

The next step is to install the mobile rails and the metal support for the panels that will be placed on the roof, and then they can be mounted.
